Well, Issue #1 is out. It's available. It's in the known universe. The alternate universe versions of us are already more accomplished, so I don't know or worry about them and their lives in Manhatan (Fringe reference...you're cool if you get it...it's a club. Don't worry about it.)
There's always a lot of hoop-la about getting something started, and Evan and I feel INCREDIBLY lucky that we were able to produce the first issue. There's 50 copies in the world of Youth #1 right now. That is a weird thought. We've put something out there, from our collective conscience, to be judged by you, the audience. It's a strange thought, to have produced something for the world at large.
|My usual emotional state when I see|
something I've written.
Evan's better at it than me. I rarely can look at things once I'm done with them. From a writing standpoint, I am never happy with what I've produced, and rarely do I look back on something and consider it the best representation of me as a writer. I nitpick myself worse than anyone, but that's not to say I need constant assurance what I do is "good". I know I'm a good writer...somewhere in my brain there is a neuron that fires ever so quietly that surfaces and tells me so. Regardless, it's nice to know the other half of this creation thinks what we're doing is good. I do too...it's just hard for me to put it in perspective.

You haven't met her yet...but you will. And she's gonna be real important.
So, I'm gonna finish up by plugging my twitter feed (@alexdandino) and a couple comics you guys NEED to check out by indie peoples like Evan and Me:

Human City (http://gavinpatricksmith.blogspot.com/) is a new book by our friends Gavin Smith and Orion Zangara. Here's the basic idea:
"In a world that's been overrun by mutants, the last remaining super-hero must get a baby who may be mankind's last hope for survival across the country!"
Come on...I mean, how awesome does that sound? It's great art, great writing...everything you need. The link provided has the issue up for sale through PayPal too. Go get it!
